We had dinner at Spanky's on Mother's Day. We were on vacation and looked up restaurants on the water. Spanky's had a high TripAdvisor score so we chose it. The restaurant was very busy but we were seated right away. Our server was very nice and our food came out right away. Despite it being busy, no one rushed us... More

I've been wanting to come here after my husband brought me to the Cape for the first time three years ago. But unfortunately our family trip in July always went through Hyannis to head to Truro for our vacation. So on a whim my husband and I decided to go away for the night to stay in Yarmouth. We spent... More

This place is very popular on Ocean ave. We preferred the patio area because of the openness and the fresh air. Service was excellent and will definitely recommend this place.

On a reccommendation we decided to try this establishment. As you would expect by the name, seafood is the predominant items on the menu, but all tastes are catered for. This is casual eating with higher end prices, but plate quantise are large. We shared a starter of calamari which was well cooked and more than sufficient for two. My... More

Spanky's was recommended to us for a casual seafood dinner last evening. We were able to find free parking in the lot, but the number of spaces is very limited. It is still off-season, but the restaurant was full. The wait staff is attentive, but this is clearly a fast-moving tourist restaurant that wants to turn the tables quickly. The... More

We took our chances on getting a table, without a reservation, on Mother's Day evening, but we lucked out! We were able to get a table inside. The place was very busy, but the staff kept up beautifully. The menu is amazingly complete and varied. However, the Lazy Man's Lobster caught our eyes. It was a wonderful entree! The meat... More

I'm from the midwest and I like to try new foods so I ordered the stuffed Quahog...pronouncing it as any good midwesterner would: "Quay-hog". Our server, Judy, graciously corrected me with the correct pronunciation of "Ko-hog". Lessoned learned and oh by the way, the stuffed Quahog is wonderful! Next up I ordered fried "Whole Belly Fried Clams"...yet another item I've... More

The location was convenient but they only had outside dining and umbrellas for some and that is tough for those who sunburn. Service was average. The prices were very high but portions are large.
